Additional information

CHARITY FIGHTER
Was working at Les Mills gym, Auckland, and was inspired to enter a corporate boxing night, raising money for charity. "I saw the training program, 12 weeks, and thought I'm gonna get fit. Then one of our PTs (personal trainers) passed away unexpectedly, and because it was a charity night, I thought instead of raising money for children, I'd raise money for their family. It gave me more motivation and reason to do it. I did it, stepped in the ring, enjoyed the training, so just kept on doing it." (stuff.co.nz, 22 Feb 2018)

TV APPEARANCE
Appeared in a handful of episodes of Shortland Street in 2007 as Caitlin OWENS, and was in the costume and wardrobe department for the show Spartacus in 2013. "It was just a part-time thing, and that all came because my father is a costume designer." (stuff.co.nz, 22 Feb 2018)

BIRTHDAY CALL
News of her selection for the NZ squad at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games came the night before her 30th birthday, meaning celebrations started early. "I got a phone call from our head of high performance - I wondered if it was good or bad." (stuff.co.nz, 22 Feb 2018)
